02:50 PM ET 05.01 | The Minnesota Wild recalled goaltender Darcy Kuemper from the American Hockey League's Houston Aeros on Wednesday. This move was expected, given the injury sustained by starting goaltender Niklas Backstrom during warmups on Tuesday night. Backstrom sustained some kind of lower-body injury while attempting to make a save. The Wild have yet to update Backstrom's status so it remains to be seen how long he is expected to miss. The decision to call-up Kuemper will act as indication to some that Backstrom likely won't be available for Game 2.
